At Iberdrola's first ever innovation fair — a networking event aimed at bringing together innovative companies —, Edgar Martínez, CEO of Atten2, presented his company's Oilwear technology, a family of products for monitoring the state of machinery using its fluid. This sensor acquires and automatically processes the high-resolution images of a fluid and detects, quantifies and classifies the particles by size and/or shape. Oilwear is capable of distinguishing these particles from air bubbles and measures the quantity and quality of the particles it contains in real time. "Our sensor enables the monitoring of wear patterns of critical machines and also evaluates a lubricant's level of degradation", says Edgar Martínez.

As companies become ever more dependent upon the internet of things — IoT — and increasingly digitalise their operations, they require devices capable of obtaining reliable information. Within this context, "the Oilwear sensors supply key information for designing a predictive maintenance strategy. We make it possible for companies to take decisions using smart data, which results in an optimisation of costs, improved reliability and in less operational risk", explains Edgar Martínez.

The CEO of Atten2 acknowledges that "very often there is a dearth of devices capable of obtaining this key information, which will then be processed. And we have shown the market that this technology not only provides data, but also reliable data".
